QUESTION

Brooklyn, NY

Do the problems of using a metal frame, upon which sekhakh is placed, apply to a plastic frame?

ANSWER

Yes. But if there is no good alternative or solution there then you can be somekh on the many many Rishonim and poskim who say that the concern of ma’amid is not an issue and certainly not relevant to the issue of putting sekhakh on metal/plastic.
